On the basis of goals and assists is Thorgan Hazard one of the most decisive players this season in the five major European leagues. The Red Devil points out: ‘everything You need to take into account: I trap the corners, the penalties, and sometimes I may also, the stationary phases for my account.

Also important: in comparison with the past seasons, it is my playing time significantly increased. I get more the basiself and I’m rarely changed. Unfortunately I am still missing too many chances in front of goal – I had ten to fifteen. Bon, it’s been repaired. I used to take a detour to a goal, now I’m right on target. But I still need klinischer in the finish. Still, I see that I never killersinstinct of Robert Lewandowski will have.’

“My development was slower than Eden. I have done everything possible to come that far, but five years ago nobody could predict that I, together with my brother at the Red Devils would sit.

‘Again: I wanted not to leave. I want to be higher up, no steps to skip. I have never denied this: without my brother, I was never at Chelsea touched. Only an idiot will say that Eden has played no role in that transfer. But I know that I myself – without the help of Eden – my career should develop, and that my name should deliver. Or better said: I must ensure that the people my first name to remember.’
